Eagle-Gryphon Games is currently running a Kickstarter project to fund Lisboa, a new game from designer Vital Lacerda in which players will “reconstruct the great city of Lisboa after the 1755 earthquake, tsunami and fires.”

On November 1, 1755, Lisboa suffered an earthquake of an estimated magnitude of 8.5–9.0, followed by a devastating tsunami and 3 days of raging fires that nearly destroyed the city.  Lisboa is a game about the reconstruction of the great Portuguese capital city after a series of terrible catastrophes.

In rebuilding the city, players will make use of the Royal Builder, who works with the architects to build Lisboa anew, while the Marquis will provide aid in the development of commerce. The King will provide players with political help in re-opening the beautiful new city. But the true reason you are rebuilding the city is not for greatness, or even fame or fortune. As a nobleman or noblewoman of Lisboa, your primary motivation is the acquisition of Wigs–a most important trading commodity of the Era, and the means of scoring points in the game. 

A copy of the game will include:

  • Gameboard
  • Rulebook & Player Aids
  • Player Boards
  • Goods Tokens
  • Coins
  • Plans
  • Public Buildings
  • Large & Small City Tiles
  • Scoring Tiles
  • Royal Favor Tiles
  • Clergy Tiles
  • Cardinal Meeple
  • Political Cards
  • Ship Cards
  • Decree Cards
  • Rubble Cubes
  • Treasury Marker
  • Meeples & Tokens in Player Colors
  • Starting Player Tile
  • Clergy Tile
  • Rubble Bags

This project is set to fund on Thursday, December 15, 2016.  For more information and to support this project, visit the Kickstarter page.

upsized diceA project has been created, by Laura Flores S./Eagle Claw Designs, to produce Machined Die. Here’s some more information taken from the Kickstarter page:

Well to simply put it these are 25mm polyhedral dice that are made from 6061 Aluminum. These dice will have large faces/surface area, be slightly heavier(providing a more solid roll), and also be the first 25mm metal polyhedral dice offered on Kickstarter.  The dice are CNC machined from solid billets of aluminum. These dice are larger than your standard gaming dice and when rolled provide all the “Thunk” and “Thunder” you need to catch your competitors attention. 

The dice will be offered in 5 different anodized colors and a brilliant hand polished finish. These colors will include green anodized, pure blue anodized, red anodized, clear anodized and a fifth color which will be decided by YOU! The decision for the fifth color will be based on a poll that will be posted mid way through the campaign and each backer will be allowed to submit their choice of color.
